I only know what I read in the scriptures of the new testament about "the star".

I stop there and try not to say anymore. I can infer from the verses what God is doing with the star.
It is what God has revealed through His Holy Spirit and is all God has deemed necessary to be known. I take the scriptures as the word of God and try not to impose my thoughts and ideas in to the words. It can happen though at time, but I work very hard at trying to be honest with what God gives us.
All that is necessary for salvation has been given in His Son Jesus the Christ.

Matthew 2:2.  "Where is the newborn King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in far-off eastern lands, and have come to worship him.''

 Matthew 2:7.  "Then Herod sent a private message to the astrologers, asking them to come to see him; at this meeting he found out from them the exact time when they first saw the star. Then he told them, "

Matthew 2:9.  "After this interview the astrologers started out again. And look! The star appeared to them again, standing over Bethlehem."

Matthew 2:16.  "Herod was furious when he learned that the astrologers had disobeyed him. Sending soldiers to Bethlehem, he ordered them to kill every baby boy two years old and under, both in the town and on the nearby farms, for the astrologers had told him the star first appeared to them two years before.

I think I view the star simply as  a guiding star to the Babe Jesus placed by God.
